She came back with a bang after being signed off work with exhaustion half way through her world tour in July.
And Ellie Goulding proved she was back on top form, as she posed for the September issue of Remix magazine.
Posing topless for the New Zealand fashion magazine, the 29-year-old Burn hitmaker put on a sizzling display.
Wearing her shoulder-length blonde hair tousled and blow-dried, the beauty went for bold eyebrows, highlighting her plump lips.
And posing for the front cover, Ellie can be seen in nothing but a blue sequin skirt, as she holds a blazer in front of her bare chest to maintain
In another shot she shows off her intricate rib tattoo as her windswept hair blows around her face.
And in the other black and white shots, Ellie models a range of New Zealand fashion.
Showing off her toned midriff she dons a bustier and silk wide-leg trousers as she lays on the floor with her legs sprawled apart.
Another shot sees her in a racy silk miniskirt adorned with metal hardware, matched with a plunging silk kimono top, accentuating her curves.
The photoshoot comes ahead of the final leg of her Delirium world tour, which ends in Australia in October.
Starting out in January, the tour consists of 4 legs, European, North American, Summer Festivals and Oceanic- including 89 dates, 88 cities.
Last month the blonde beauty was signed off her Delerium World Tour with exhaustion and has been taking it easy since.
